Jake Lamb targets June 1 return to Diamondbacks

The Arizona Diamondbacks are hoping that third baseman Jake Lamb, who is recovering from a left foot stress reaction, can return to the team by June 1.

"I think we're looking at him being back in the big leagues by the first of next month," manager Chip Hale said Tuesday. "He's close."

Lamb got off to a strong start this season -- going 12-for-29 with nine RBIs in 10 games -- before he was placed on the disabled list on April 22.
